Hi all,
   would like some working code that will allow me to hide the "run" feature on the start menu. I need to hide or disable it at times and then show and enable it at other times. I'm sure it can be done in the registry, just forgot how? I'm using vb 5.0

thank you

That feature is part of "policies" feature of OS. Maybe searching at registry where is located, you could do it.

Hey  Richie_Simonetti,

Good Job, knew it was somewhere in the registry. I had to make a new folder for it but it worked :)

Thanks Again!
